The pattern is done on 28 count evenweave, 1 over 1. I will try to post a picture sometime in the next couple weeks.
When I stopped working on them I had done part pages on both. So I picked up "Envy" to finish the bottom row.
18cnt, 2 over 1, DMC
Everyone's Work is Looking great!
Happy Stitching All!

I'm so proud of how he came out and now I have my fingers crossed hoping for the swift arrival of Meredith Dillman's QS Emerald Dragon but in the meantime it's back to Faerie Melody for a while!!
With Gaudí I've finally finished this portion of the sky, and worked a little more on the tower, another 4 or 5 weeks, and this page is done as well!
Both are stitched in 18 count aida and are 2 over 1 full cross stitch.
I reached the bottum of the work. 580 stitches high. its on 18 ct aida.
Now in February I am starting The First Rose from Christensen.
The preperations were already done. For this I use my framestanderd. I do her without the background. nevertheless its a large project.

Hi Everyone, I just completed my 6th page on my Shore Line Village by Dennis P. Lewan, It is stitched on 25 count Lugana, 1 over 1 full cross! I am working down in pages, rather than across, due to the fact that I would have gone crazy with all that sky in one go!!! You can't see it in this picture but I have all on the first column done.....
Here is what it will look like all done:
Here is what I had done before this page, all the way to the bottom of the chart:
And here is the latest page I just finished!

You can see in the bottom right corner the start of one of her wings. And the blobs are actually becoming images!

1 thread over 1 square, full cross stitch
Posted on behalf of my buddy Shannon
Here is my HAED Nature’s Mourning. Unfortunately I did not write down the fabric count. It is a mocha evenweave. I am stitching 2 over 2.
Before and after pictures :Before:

Now, I have a question. I see that a lot of you grid your pieces. I have The Story Keeper going (need to find it to start working on it again since I moved) and I didn't grid. But I am working 20 x 20 squares when I work on it. When you grid, do you use thread or do you use fabric marker that comes out in the wash? And, do you wash your pieces after you stitch them to get it out? I think I would be afraid to wash my piece. LOL I'm always very careful to wash my hands before I stitch and keep my pieces in a container so they don't get dirty.
Anywhoot... I'd love to hear from you all on this.
I always enjoy looking at your beautiful projects, you all do great work!
However I'm really breezing through Gaudí's clouds, the only slow part will be the tower.
